Storyline

A small carnival is in dire financial straits. Their show is attracting fewer and fewer paying customers, as their "attractions" are aging, out of shape and beset by internal feuds and bickering. One day a beautiful young woman shows up and suggests a way of attracting customers: put on a strip show, with her as the main attraction. Her act attracts customers in droves, but it turns out that the girl has her own agenda, and it isn't to help out the carnival. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Need copy
29 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If anyone knows where I can get a copy of this film I would be very interested. Both my husband and my daughter appear in it as extras. It was made in Berlin in 1981 when we lived there. My daughter did a lot of help on the film with casting of American teenagers as extras in the film and appeared in it herself. A lot of the work was done at night and I think they were paid 100 DM and a bowl of soup for the night's work. I met Sydne Rome when she came into the American military bank to cash a check or something. I also recall that she had a spread in either Playboy or Penthouse about that time. She had also made a series of aerobic tapes. I have only seen the movie once in German and would really like to surprise my husband on his birthday with a copy of it in English.
